These little potato “nests” are so cute and great for a brunch table. The trick is to completely rinse the starch out of the potatoes and dry them well so they aren’t sticky. Make a veggie scramble if you want and put inside the nest if you want to change it up a bit- either way, the crispy potatoes are a great compliment to the soft scrambled eggs.
Butter Mint Chocolate Push pops are so fun and kids just LOVE them! I used my favorite brownie recipe and made a wonderful butter mint cream filling…the flavor is spot-on with the yummy butter mints you snake a big handful of when leaving a restaurant.
I just love this simple, creamy chocolate peppermint heaven of a drink. Candy Cane Cocoa is SO perfect for a freezing cold day like today and it’s ready in minutes. Cozy up to a fire with one!
I can almost eat a whole milk carton sized box of Whoppers in a sitting..I know- HORRIBLE for me but I love them so much! Sit me in front of a movie with popcorn and Whoppers and watch out!
Knowing my love for this delicious specimen of a candy, is it any surprise I made a Whoppers Malted Hot Chocolate? Seriously, this is like drinking a Whopper, yikers! I used to put malt powder in milk when I was a kid and I LOVE that flavor, it works so well in this hot chocolate. And, come on… this cold weather is screaming for a drink like this, so indulge.
Well, at this point it’s obvious I love candy canes. Funny, I don’t love to sit around eating a whole candy cane but I love crushed candy canes mixed in things and sprinkled on things…they are crunchy and like eating a little piece of winter, I love it! These Candy Cane Chocolate Truffle Meringues are also like eating a little piece of winter…on a cloud!! They look hard to make but really- they are quite simple. Just a few ingredients but there is a little bit of baking and waiting time so plan accordingly. These WILL impress at your Christmas function or holiday party so they’re worth it!
These Prosciutto “Sushi” Rolls with Melon and Brie make me smile just looking at them. I Love a good prosciutto and melon…then mix in some creamy brie and roll it up to look like sushi? Totes up my alley!!!
These Bunny Tail Cotton Candy Lemonade drinks make me smile from ear to ear! The “bunny tail” cotton candy sits atop pink lemonade and I found a way to pull this off without it dissolving into the water, which is key to serving this at a party.
Oh how I love little desserts that remind me of my childhood. These beautiful little whoopee pies definitely take me back and are perfect for St. Patrick’s Day! The pistachios give them a nice nutty flavor and take the edge off the sweetness, what a great combination!
This gorgeous Ham and Asparagus Strata is so wonderful for brunch and is so simple to make! A strata is basically a layered casserole- this one includes layers of bread, ham, eggs, asparagus and while cheddar, delicious!
